"Do your best and leave the rest." --Lord Krishna from the Bhagavad Gita
 
I have been thinking about this quote A LOT this week as I move through (another) time of confusion and uncertainty. It is from the Geeta Girl podcast, whose mission is to help their listeners use the wisdom in the Bhagavad Gita to improve their lives. 
 
One of the things they point out specifically is that "the Geeta" is not only a holy book or a fabulous story, but is actually a practical handbook that we can use to increase our life skills and improve our actions, thereby improving our lives. 
 
So often it can feel as though we are victims of circumstance or that the events in our lives are outside of our control, and often this is true (Hello Global Pandemic!), however, if we can learn to act more skillfully (notice they don't say "rightly" or "correctly"), we can improve our lives and the situations and lives of those around us, and have some control over how things go on a day-to-day basis. 
 
I love this idea of constantly developing our skills and it is what my blog, my books, my work and this page is all about, Being AND Becoming. Embracing who we are now and where we are now, while also evolving and growing into the next version of ourselves. 
 
If you are interested in gathering some more tools for your spiritual toolbox, I highly recommend checking out this podcast. If you do, let me know what you think!
